When the spirit fever struck a town, a village or an outpost, it left few if any survivors. The white man blamed the Indian saying they used their mojo on them. The Indians blamed the white man for angering the spirits. The survivors knew it didn’t matter. The Fevered were forever changed.
A job that needs to be done…
With his older brother Sam preoccupied by the upcoming birth of his child and younger brother Kid recovering from his injuries, Micah Kane has never been so busy—too busy to go to San Antonio and escort home the new schoolteacher—but what his father wants, his father gets. Busy or not, one look at the exotic beauty with her rich European accent and he can’t think of anything else.
A woman on the run…
Josephine Miller entered an arranged marriage on good faith. One year of misery later, she discovered a horrifying secret about her husband and fled west. Becoming a schoolteacher in a small Texas town seemed like the perfect way to disappear but Micah’s touch awakens a desperate desire that she finds herself helpless to resist.
Darkness, danger and death lurking on the horizon…
An outbreak of the spirit fever, dangerous strangers in town and wild accidents at the Flying K threatening everything they care about, Micah must convince Jo that she doesn’t have to run—together they can stand against any storm.
His code. Her secret. Their war.
Micah and Mrs. Miller is Heather Long‘s third installment in her Fevered Hearts series. So the title pretty much states who this book follows, so I promise not to be redundant and tell you again. 😉
The back story and conflict in the Fevered Hearts series is brilliantly enchanting. I love Long’s world concept with the Fevered. Surviving a tragic illness and coming out with a special super power is both a traumatic and amazing outcome. Conflicts in Micah and Mrs. Miller are at an all time high. The Cane’s and their community are under attack and they will do anything to protect those that they love. The relationships between the Cane family and many other secondary characters make this a world you want to crawl into to just join in the fight!
I am going to admit that Micah was my favorite Cane. Yet, I didn’t feel quite as connected to his character in Micah and Mrs. Miller as I expected. I think for me it might have been the realization that he was really too good of a guy – don’t judge me – with little issues or baggage made him harder to relate to. However, Mrs. Miller was an unexpected flare that did compliment Micah nicely. Their chemistry had that old fashioned feel that added to the overall feel of the setting.
Micah and Mrs. Miller is another great addition to the Fevered Hearts series.
I rate Micah and Mrs. Miller 4 out of 5 Bullets!
